Recently I saw an article about a chef who has created a low-fat Mediterranean diet. Until now, I really did think that I had heard it all, but this is just so utterly bizarre that I sat stunned, staring at my computer screen for a minute or so. If ever there was a contradiction in terms it is the words "low-fat" combined with "Mediterranean diet." Reading about this chef, it's clear that this is another of those people who simply don't understand anything about nutrition.
One of the great benefits of our understanding about the Mediterranean diet is that it put to rest the myth that a low-fat diet is beneficial. Forget You Ever Heard the Words "Low" and "Fat" and "Diet" Together
This steak can be as spicy as you want. Use a small jalapeno or even a half of a pepper for a milder sauce. Use more peppers or even something super spicy like a scotch bonnet for a real punch.
The key to this steak is making sure that you marinate for a while, not only to impart as much flavor as possible, but so that the lime juice will help tenderize the meat.
In Chapter 5, Dr. Gourmet talks about making simple changes like planning and cooking your own food. To that I would add: exercise three times per week. By coincidence, during the time I've been following Dr. Tim's book, Just Tell Me What To Eat!, I've also been in physical therapy twice a week due to pain in my knees caused by paetellar tendonitis. By trying to be active too quickly without enough stretching, my patellas became inflamed—OUCH!. Just this bi-weekly one-hour non-strenuous workout of stretches and mild weight lifting along with a weekly 20-mile or so bike ride gave me increased strength in my knees for walking and has promoted weight loss. Food and Activity FEEL Good!
